Red 1800's Historic Doll Dress to fit your 18 | Etsy

This fancy frock representing the pre-Civil War period of the 1800’s is perfect for displaying your doll for the holidays and winter months! Based on a wonderful Thimbles & Acorns pattern by Shari Fuller, available on Etsy through Pixie Faire, it’s made with hand-crocheted lace trim on a premium cotton burgundy print with tiny stripes. The dress has a natural cotton, interfaced collar with matching puffed undersleeves and pearly buttons with lace trimming the front. The detailed, 3/4 length oversleeves are gathered and have a pair of fabric bands to gather and shape them. The very full skirt has tiny pleats in front with gathers in back and a lace trimmed, above the ankle hemline. The shaped, self-lined bodice closes in back with 3 bone colored buttons, and the edged, double sided satin ribbon at the waist can be tied either in front or back. Although this dress has fitted styling, this bodice is loose enough for an early Pleasant Company doll. It’s shown on my newer Rebecca & displayed with a full slip (not included) and on a stand. The small wired rose with baby’s breath on satin ribbon is included for styling your doll’s hair. I am not affiliated with the doll or pattern manufacturer and have enjoyed making custom doll clothing for many years. My doll, accessories and props are not included. Shipping is by Economy mail with tracking number provided. Please contact me prior to payment if you are purchasing more than one item - I will provide you with reduced shipping. Thank you!
